Campbell and Co stun disappointing Uruguay

first_img To make things worse for Uruguay, Maxi Pereira was sent off for an idiotic and violent hack on Campbell. 14/06/2014 And with Uruguay pressing for an equaliser, Costa Rica stung them again, with Campbell turning provider. He slid a brilliant through-ball in for Marco Urena, who rolled it past the miserable Muslera to seal the game. Most had expected them to come bottom of the “Group of Death”, also featuring England and Italy, but this was an inspired comeback.  And then Costa Rica turned the game on its head in the second period. Referee: Felix Brych (Germany). Goal: Campbell 53′; Duarte 57′; Urena 84′. A free kick on the right was whipped in superbly to the back post and Oscar Duarte dived in to head the ball back across Fernando Muslera’s goal and into the far corner.  Costa Rica: Navas, Gamboa, Umana, Gonzalez, Duarte, Diaz, Bolanos, Borges, Tejeda (Cubero 74), Ruiz (Urena 83), Campbell. The rest of the first half was an attritional affair, with neither side making any great threat. Costa Rica stunned Uruguay in Fortaleza despite falling behind to the fancied South American side. Sent off: Campbell. Uruguay threw on Gonzalez and Lodeiro immediately, while Abel Hernandez replacing Cristian Rodriguez was their third substitution later on. Uruguay: Muslera, Caceres, Lugano, Godin, Pereira, Gargano (Gonzalez 59), Arevalo, Rodriguez (Hernandez 76), Stuani, Forlan (Lodeiro 59), Cavani. Arsenal striker Joel Campbell took down a cross well and rifled home to equalise for Costa Rica. It was a brilliant goal, superbly taken by the young forward, who spent the last season on loan at Olympiacos.center_img England and Italy beware, Costa Rica are not here to make up the numbers.  The Liverpool forward is arguably the most in-form plater in the world but injury hampered his preparations for the World Cup and he may return against England next week.  And in the 57th minute, they scored again. Levante goalkeeper Navas, so impressive this season, made a fine stop from a Cavani header as Uruguay searched for an equaliser.  Upd. on 15/06/2014 at 05:03 CEST It looked soft at first but upon repeat viewings it was clear the referee had made the right call. But they only had to wait a few moments more for the goal they craved.  Uruguay thought they had taken the lead when Diego Godin prodded home from close range, but he was correctly adjudged to be offside.  Match facts Rik Sharma It meant star striker Luis Suarez was left on the sidelines.  Goal: Cavani 23 (pen). Booked: Caceres, Lugano, Gargano. Felix Brych pointed to the spot after 22 minutes, when Junior Diaz dragged down defender Diego Lugano in the box. Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani stepped up to the mark and drilled the penalty coolly past Keylor Navas, into the bottom-right corner.last_img read more

Nitehawks put an end to nightmare season of Nelson Leafs

first_imgAll the scoring Beaver Valley would need came at the two minute mark of the second period when Kyle Hope scored an unassisted tally past Josh Williams in the Leaf nets.The Hawks then rode the stellar netminding of Tallon Kramer for the remainder of the game to seal the victory and the series.“I have to say in Games three and four, (Tallon) Kramer was outstanding,” said Leaf coach Mario DiBella.“There were probably six opportunities where we could have buried the puck but (Kramer) just came up with a terrific save.”Nelson, which out shot the Hawks 31-25 in the game, received a terrific performance from Williams in the Leaf nets.Despite going out four straight, DiBella, who came on board before Christmas when the executive made a change in the coaching staff, was pleased with the resiliency of a hockey team that was left battered and bruised by the former regime.“I think this team performed to its potential,” DiBella explained. “I think the players who had the confidence beaten out of them just didn’t get that confidence back they had coming into the season.”Unfortunately, for Leaf fans there will be no more playoff hockey in March for the fifth consecutive year — four of the past five playoff exits happening in the first round at the hands of the Nitehawks.As for DiBella, he’ll wait for the dust to settle before making a decision if he wants to return behind the bench to lead the Leafs next season.“That remains to be seen,” he said.LEAF BANTER: It was an emotional post-game handshake for Nelson Minor Hockey grad Nolan Percival, who was traded to Beaver Valley during the season. The speedy forward stop to share hugs with many of his former teammates. . . . Leaf forward Cleary Ambrose was back in the lineup for Nelson after missing Friday’s game with the flu. . . . The Hawks have a few days to rest while waiting for the winner of the Castlegar/Grand Forks series. Saturday in Grand Forks Chris Breese scored this third goal of the game early in overtime to spark the Rebels to the 6-5 victory. The series is tied 2-2 with Game five Monday in Castlegar. The series then shifts back to Grand Forks for Game six Tuesday. The first game of the Murdoch Final is slated for Saturday, March 5 in Fruitvale. The 2015-16 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season for the Nelson Leafs had the ride of a Silverwood rollercoaster, up one day, down the next.So it came as no surprise to many fans that the end of the season would come on a downer for the Heritage City franchise.Saturday night, at the NDCC Arena, saw the conclusion of the nightmare campaign for the Green and White when the Beaver Valley Nitehawks scored a 1-0 decision over the Leafs to sweep the best-of-seven Murdoch Division Semi Final 4-0.The Hawks now advance to meet the winner of the Grand Forks/Castlegar series while the Leafs look to the future to try to rebuild this once proud franchise.“We sure would have liked to see this series continue but we feel we now have a platform and a little bit of structure now back into the organization,” said Leaf president John Dooley following the contest.“Unfortunately we ran into a lot of injuries to some of our key players and that hurt us in this series.”“But I think you can tell from this playoff round that clearly there’s a bit of direction now and it wasn’t from a lack of effort that these young men lost tonight,” Dooley added.last_img read more

Cuyuni contretemps

first_imgAt the end of last month, officials of the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC), travelling in a boat in the Cuyuni River, Eteringbang area, reported that Venezuelan soldiers from their “bank” of the river, fired shots at them which luckily or deliberately missed. Guyana immediately lodged a protest to which the Venezuelans responded three days ago, rejecting the charge.“It is important to note that the investigations carried out by the Venezuelan military authorities have not reported of any incident in the above mentioned area and our military units confirm not having carried out any military exercise in that location,” the statement from the Venezuelan Embassy asserted.This incident is only the latest in a series of confrontational moves by Venezuela towards Guyana during the past year and Guyanese need to keep focused on the pertinent issues so that the interests of our country and nation are safeguarded. The bottom line for us is Venezuela unilaterally created a controversy in February 1962 when at the UN they disputed the “full and final” Arbitral Award made in 1899 that settled the border between Venezuela and Guyana.As a prerequisite to granting independence to Guyana in 1966, Britain as the colonial power participated in a three-way conference in 1965 that produced the “Geneva Agreement” outlining the procedures that must be mutually agreed to for the Good Office of the UN Secretary General to address the Venezuelan controversy.After following two approved methods for the last half century, Guyana has proposed that the controversy be placed before the World Court for a full and final juridical decision. As part of the Geneva Agreement both parties were instructed not to enlarge their claims.In March 2015, after the US oil giant ExxonMobil had been requested to begin drilling for oil in the Stabroek Block off the Essequibo Coast, Venezuela wrote the company objecting to the move. Guyana protested this interference in its internal affairs. Back in October 2013, the Guyanese Government had hired the oil drilling company Anadarko to conduct studies for future oil concessions in the Roraima Block off Essequibo’s coast, where it was concentrating on petroleum exploration. The Venezuelan Navy intercepted the ship and forced it into a port at Venezuela’s Margarita Island. The captain, a Ukrainian national, was charged with violating Venezuela’s Exclusive Economic Zone while the rest of the crew were released.In the subsequent effort to deal with the matter, the Foreign Ministers of Guyana and Venezuela met on October 2013 in Trinidad and hashed out an agreement that a technical team would meet within four months, “to explore mechanisms within the context of international law to address the issue of maritime delimitation”.As Foreign Minister Carolyn Rodrigues-Birkett noted at the time, both sides restated that their individual and contradictory claims were valid, but in an evident coup for Guyana, the maritime demarcation was delinked from the fallacious claim Venezuela had been making for Essequibo.However almost immediately after the ExxonMobil rig struck oil in May 2015, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro issued a presidential decree, No 1787, and published in their Ordinary Official Gazette No 40,669, dated May 27. The map claimed Venezuela’s sovereignty of all waters within the 200 miles range hence blocking Guyana’s access to resources in that area of the Atlantic Ocean. Guyana and Caricom protested this decree when it was uncovered in July 2015 and Venezuela withdrew it and replaced it with one that did not mention coordinates.The point to be made is while Venezuela has complained that the US is behind the heightening of present tensions, the Maduro administration has taken initiatives to raise its border controversy independent of that country and its obvious strategic concerns over the Venezuelan oil reserves.While there is a dispute over facts in the latest skirmish at Cuyuni, the border controversy must be settled through a judicial settlement.We are heartened the government has hired two high-level legal experts in this area.last_img read more

Light-rail project funds approved

first_imgThe commission also approved funding for a project to improve safety at railway grade crossings along the Metrolink system at Van Nuys Boulevard and Buena Vista/Vanowen streets. The overall project cost is about $14 million, most of which has already been funded from several state, local and federal sources; Wednesday’s commission action provided about $600,000 toward that overall funding. The CTC allocated nearly half of the $640 million for the first phase of the Exposition Line, 8.5 miles from the existing Metro Rail station at Seventh Street/Metro Center. The line will head south toward the University of Southern California, then along Exposition Boulevard and end at Washington/National in Culver City. Construction on the first phase started last year and is scheduled for completion in 2010. The second phase, still in the planning stages, will connect Culver City to the beach in Santa Monica. While there had been concern that cuts in transportation funds by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger would jeopardize some of the projects, the commission determined that funds were available and approved the money unanimously with no debate. “It’s a very important day for Los Angeles,” said Assemblyman Mike Feuer, D-West Hollywood, who chairs the budget subcommittee on transportation. “This is absolutely fundamental to the future of not only this line, but public transit in Los Angeles. The Exposition Line is a foundation for what can be, to alleviate congestion throughout our region.” Metro had already begun construction on the first phase, so failing to win approval for the last state funding piece would have sent agency officials scrambling for other sources. “I think Metro would have moved to delay other projects, because this project is under construction,” said David Yale, deputy executive officer with Metro. He said the Metro board has a list of projects it wants to pursue but has not allocated funding because it was waiting for state action on the Expo Line. Other Los Angeles projects approved by the commission included widening the off-ramp from the 105 Freeway onto Sepulveda Boulevard near Los Angeles International Airport. Officials say traffic on that off-ramp often backs up onto the freeway during busy times, causing crashes and additional freeway congestion. The project costs $7.6 million. harrison.sheppard @dailynews.com (916) 446-6723160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SACRAMENTO – Los Angeles commuters got some long-sought relief Wednesday as the California Transportation Commission greenlighted a costly light-rail project to aid Westside commuters but provided only slight aid to the San Fernando Valley. The funding comes after months of being stalled amid a legislative budget deadlock but now means that several projects can move forward, including $315 million for the Exposition light-rail line project. “(This) ensures continued progress without interruption in building the Expo light-rail line to Culver City and ultimately to Santa Monica,” said the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors chairman, Zev Yaroslavsky, in a written statement. “It hastens the day we can finish the project and bring mass rapid transit and a measure of genuine traffic relief to the people of West Los Angeles.” last_img read more

Endorsements for Manhattan school board

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.In this race, we would hope that no matter who wins, all the candidates will remain active in the district. Our view is that Howorth merits re-election. She says the district must continue to demonstrate fiscal stability to voters before any future school bond measure could be placed on the ballot. Howorth also holds open the possibility of a parcel tax, which other top-performing districts in California depend upon. For the second seat, we feel that Fournell would be a good fit given his service on the 7-11 panel and the need for the district to better use its properties to increase operating revenues. Fournell’s top priorities include working to retain quality teachers. He vows to reduce the 16 percent teacher turnover rate that occurred during the last school year. Fournell would also work to reduce the long-term debt load from the previous school construction program. On Election Day, we recommend a vote for Amy Howorth and Bill Fournell. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! In Manhattan Beach, only three candidates are running for two seats on the school board. One might reasonably conclude from the small field that the current board and administration have moved beyond the divisions of four years ago when the charges of fiscal mismanagement led voters to seek new leadership. As one of the candidates in the Nov. 6 election, incumbent Amy Howorth, sees it, the district is no longer depleting its reserves, the budget is balanced, underused properties have been identified and relations with the city and Education Foundation have been strengthened. Test scores in the district remain among the highest in the state. Another candidate for school board, Bill Fournell, is an information technology consultant and school volunteer who served on the 7-11 committee, which surveyed district assets. Rounding out the field is Lester Silverman, a doctor and businessman who serves on the city’s Parking and Public Improvements Commission. Silverman is also Grand View Elementary School’s liaison with the school board. last_img read more
